    We had an amazing experience at the Regency Room. I requested a special evening for my wife as we were celebrating her 35th birthday a few days early. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The hosts, the servers, the food, the entertainment, the ambience, everything couldn’t have been more perfect!

    Service and ambiance were really good. Food was mediocre at best with the exception of the bisque which was outstanding. Fillet was way over cooked and duck was tough.

    Do not waste your time or money. Just at $500 for two couples. We arrived at 6:45. Very few people there. Place never got full. The drinks took over 15 minutes to arrive. The appetizers another 30 and the entrees, just steaks and Salmon over an hour plus after the appetizers. Total time about 2 hours. Way too long. The server was not attentive. It was necessary to ask for service. At one point we asked what the delay was and his answer was well if you have any patience left, I’ll check. Food was decent, but the noise level was evident. We won’t be back. A long way from even a two star rating.

    I liked the atmosphere and all but the food was overly seasoned and was not as great as the last time my group went there. Also, the waiter that we had sprinkled powdered sugar all over our table when he was sprinkling it on our dessert. He was a personable waiter but I think he was a little sloppy when pouring. Also, the food took a while to get out.

    It just wasn’t as good as previous years. The service was mediocre and we had to go get our own coffee cream. Staff was pleasant but complacent and not as happy as they used to be. The food selection was more limited. Next year we will have brunch at Billy’s before we tour the Christmas trees.

    We've held our board holiday luncheon in the Regency Room at the Hotel Roanoke for the past two years! Just to give some context, I had hosted events at the Hotel Roanoke in the Regency Room for many years while living in the Roanoke Valley. There were several years we reserved a large private board room which accomodated 20-25 people. The food was always excellent. It was served warm and the presentation was very appealing. The service was excellent. We took a four to five year break from coming to the Hotel Roanoke when one of our Directors was a member at the Shenandoah Club. He completed his tenure on the Board a couple years ago so we decided to host our holiday meal in the Regency room again in 2021. Unfortunately, the food wasn't very good. I thought it might be because our reservation was at 1 pm, and many of the dishes on the buffet had been sitting out for awhile which may have contributed to the temperature, and bland taste of many of the choices. I also thought it might be due to Covid, etc. That being said we decided to reserve the Regency Room this year. Unfortunately, the vegetables and meats on the serving buffet weren't very warm and somewhat tasteless. The dressing and/or stuffing was very dry, and it didn't hold together. There weren't enough desserts from which to choose. The chocolate tart (I think it was a tart) was very dry and crumbly. As far as I know no one tried the cake. I had the mousse (can't remember if it was chocolate or vanilla) didn't have much of a taste. There was a large variety of veggies, lettuce, and fruit on the salad bar and everything was fresh. Our server was excellent. He was very personable and went out of his way to accomodate our group. There was another very nice gentleman who made sure we had coffee and/or tea with our dessert. Normally, I wouldn't give negative comments, but I don't want to give up on the Hotel Roanoke so thought it might be helpful to be transparent.

    Another terrific dinner at the Regency Room. No Chef's Table offering this evening, but great work on some of the old standards. Little touches from Chef Matt were delightful, and the holiday pastry work from Chef Lauren was exceptional (the Snow Globe was a work of art). The musical trio had one of their best nights, making the entire evening a treat.

    A delightful and lovely evening. My wife and I felt like we were dining in a 5 star restaurant, and we were. We were there on a Saturday evening, which meant that there was music provided by an instrumental trio. Though not many took advantage of the dance floor, we certainly did! We highly recommended the Regency Room.

    It seems that the choices and different dishes has drastically diminished since our last trip. This time, only three 'rice' salads - no tossed. There was a stack of dirty dishes at the beginning of the salad line, and after trying to remove a couple, I realized they all needed to be replaced. A young worker was watching, and apologized and offered to take away the entire stack - however, I returned later, and the top one still had food from a prior diner. (I can't believe someone could have removed this many from the dishwasher and not noticed - it was very obvious). Every dish that should ahve been warm was not - from soups to veggies to meat to bacon/sausage and waffles. I guess the little lites weren't working under the serving dishes. It was not very busy, so these things were pretty inexcusable for such an expensive meal. It seems as the usual excuse keeps popping up: Covid. But I don't buy that any more. We wanted to buy a $100 gift certificate for the Regency Room, and my husband went on Saturday (had to be purchased at front/check-in counter) and there was only one worker, who said she'd be busy for 30 minutes. So he left and we came for brunch the next day, to accomplish both errands. After brunch, we went to the check-in counter were there were two clerks helping one customer each. After about 10 minutes, the party in front of us was finished so we stepped forward, and asked what we needed. Telling her that we wanted a $100 gift certificate for the Regency room, she said she had to finish up from the last party. After at least five minutes on the computer, she 'logged' off, picked up her keys and walked away?! No explanation - no mention of "I'll be back". Meanwhile, more people were in line behind me, and the other clerk was still working with the original party. So after at least another five minutes, I left. I think we won't be giving any recommendations or gift certificates until service and quality improve.
